Japan Marine Science and Technology center (JAMSTEC) developed a full ocean depth research ROV (remotely operated vehicle), "KAIKO", whose construction started in January, 1991, and whose sea trial was carried out from May, 1993 to March, 1995. The sea trial had three separated phases, that is, the first test at 1000 m deep ocean near the main land of Japan, the second test at Nansei Shoto Trench of 6500 m deep, and the final test at Mariana Trench in order to confirm the capability of the… 
An outline of R/V Kairei and recent activity of the multichannel seismic reflection survey system (MCS) and ROV Kaiko
Abstract The deep-sea research vessel Kairei was built in 1996 to carry out general deep-sea research, and is now active throughout the world. Kairei is the mother ship for the remotely operated
Missing of the ROV Kaiko vehicle - problem on the secondary cable
Kaiko has been the only full ocean depth survey system in the world since 1995. The Kaiko system comprises a launcher, the vehicle, primary cable, secondary cable, on board equipment and the R/V
A ROV "ABISMO" for the Inspection and Sampling in the Deepest Ocean and Its Operation Support System
Recently, a number of bacteria including new one have been found from mud samples of Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. In order to get those samples or the sediment core in there, an underwater
Development of advanced secondary cable for the full ocean depth ROV Kaiko
Kaiko has accomplished more than 20 dives to 11000 m at the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench since 1995. On May 29th in 2003, Kaiko made 296th dive at a depth of 4675m to recover bore whole data
A precise bathymetric map of the world’s deepest seafloor, Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench
Data from three bathymetric surveys by R/V Kairei using a 12-kHz multibeam echosounder and differential GPS were used to create an improved topographic model of the Challenger Deep in the
Terrain matching localization for hybrid underwater vehicle in the Challenger Deep of the Mariana Trench
TLDR
With the bathymetric map produced by a multibeam sonar, the terrain contour matching (TERCOM) method is adopted for terrain matching localization and the final matching results show the best estimate of location in the reference terrain map.
Search for the Japanese H-II Rocket Flight No. 8
In November 1999, the H-II Rocket Flight No. 8 was launched from Tanegashima Space Center. However, the first stage engine stopped suddenly in 4 minutes. Consequently, the engine dropped 380 nautical
Development and Sea Trials of a 6000m Class ROV for Marine Scientific Research
A 6000-meter depth rating remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for marine scientific research is developed at Shenyang Institute of Automation, China. The 6000-meter scientific ROV can meet the scientific
